The Status Quo

Contracts are hard. Smart contracts aren't truly smart.

The legal services industry is currently entering a phase of deep transformation and smart contracts and blockchain technology are taking the world by storm - but how can lawyers, consumers, developers and corporations reap the benefits of these new technologies?

There are 4 issues with contracts and smart contracts that the Contract Vault platform aims to solve:

  1. ISSUE #1
    CONTRACT USAGE

    Squiggle

    Contract templates are often poorly drafted, out-of-date, unclear, not truly customisable or extensible and require too much legal knowledge to use for average consumers.

  2. ISSUE #2
    CONTRACT CREATION

    sweat

    Contract creation is hard, inefficient and tedious, even for legal professionals. Collaboration with clients is inefficient and usually consists of emailing documents back and forth.

  3. ISSUE #3
    SMART CONTRACTS

    Text

    Smart contracts are complicated and expensive to implement, inaccessible to non-technical people, can be insecure and are often not legally compliant. They are developed for specific use-cases and are not reusable.

  4. ISSUE #4
    ACCESS

    clock

    Access to legal and technical advice for conventional and smart contracts is expensive and hard to obtain quickly.

The Solution

Contract Vault is the place where this will change.

Users can construct their own reusable, customisable SmartTemplates or access a wide range of ready-made verified, legally-enforceable SmartTemplates which can be used to generate any kind of conventional or smart contract. Lawyers can provide advice, get access to secure smart contracts and use our tools such as SmartDossiers to collaborate with their clients more efficiently. Blockchain experts can offer their expertise and services directly on the Contract Vault Marketplace. Businesses can quickly and efficiently implement (smart) contracts tailored to their needs.

Use Cases / Integrations

The sky is the limit when it comes to the use cases of the Contract Vault platform. Our unique visual editor SmartEdit supports any kind of contract.

Agreements can be modelled as conventional contracts, smart contracts or a mixture of both. For example, if you lend your car to another party, you can include a security (eg. in the form of tokens) to be transferred by the borrower via a smart contract as a validity requirement for the agreement.

The ability to trigger smart contracts using both on- and off-chain events enables the creation of complete blockchain applications.

Below are some featured projects and applications currently in development or being planned that build on the Contract Vault platform.

The Contract Vault platform can generate a variety of end-products from our SmartTemplates, including:

  • Conventional legal agreements, which can then be used offline in the usual manner
  • Legal agreements, which can be saved securely on decentralised storage and made tamper-proof using signed blockchain transactions
  • SmartForms and SmartDossiers, which empower legal professionals by enabling them to communicate and collaborate with their clients more efficiently
  • Customised Smart Contracts, such as Ethereum Smart Contracts
  • Legally-enforceable Smart Contracts in the form of Ricardian contracts or dual-linked smart contracts
